Day 20 – Continuing on St. Clair River, Visit with Cousins, and tour Port Huron

We continued north on the St. Clair river today stopping for the day in Port Huron.  Strong winds from the north and current of the river made for slow passage.    We wanted to stop in Port Huron to visit our cousin Bill.  Bill and his son Bill Jr picked us up at the boat and took us all around town.  Big highlight: a tour of the light Ship “The Huron” and the Fort Gratiot Lighthouse.  Drove past Bill Jrs office and marveled at the skiff he’s building.  Our evening ended after an enjoyable dinner at a cajun restaurant downtown.

    Glad you had a nice day on land today. I know we enjoyed our visit to the Huron Lightship and Fort Gratiot Lighthouse a few years ago. Looking forward to tomorrow’s post after a day on Lake Huron.

      I was surprised they allowed us to walk on the catwalk with the strong winds. But they did. In fact, we were the only ones on that tour walk. Great time!
